  1. I never realized what a banana-hammock the Showdown Thing had. Just for that reason alone the MU version is superior.
  2. Hmm, that might work. Thanks for the pic.
  3. How tall is she? I'm thinking I might use her for a Lady Sif if she looks right next to ML Thor.
  4. I'm going with the Beyonder, too. I'm not quite sure about his origin since the Illuminati series revealed he's actually Black Bolt's son. He may not be as powerful as he seemed in the SW 1 and 2, but he can still re-arrange planets with ease. Molecule Man never did anything as big as assembling Battleworld.
  5. MS Spider-Man - Every time they announce a new MS figure, I can't help but feel disappointment. When Jesse said that were going to be focusing on "bigger" characters, I really thought he meant Terrax, Titanium Man, Odin and people like that. I guess having more ML scale large characters was just wishful thinking on my part.
  6. That sounds like way too much work. Much easier to just say - Galactus as a cloud sucked. While those with advanced knowledge on a subject might be able to put together a more thorough, in depth and logical sounding critique, a novice consumer can still express a valid reaction, as worthwhile as an insider. The dialogue and presentation of the Star Wars sequels were dull. The effects often looked fake. While having insider knowledge of the actual effects techniques used might make my understanding of the insufficients more detailed, I doubt they would change my impressions. That said, it would be pretty darn cool to make super-hero movies. That, obviously, would take more skill and resources than I have.
  7. There is a ton of Hasbro stuff out this year, but the only line that seems to have suffered is ML. Since they have a different team of people working on each line, I don't think there would be any cost to quality from distraction or anything. The amount of money Hasbro spends on a line is probably based mostly on estimated sales rather than what other lines Hasbro is doing. The fact is, I'm kind of sorry Hasbro isn't doing the Star Trek line. If that had been done with the same quality of MU or ML, I'd probably be buying it. Then again, money is tight so maybe it's just as well.
  8. He definitely looks menacing. I always thought the character was a little wimpy for an Iron Man villain. All IM has to do is get in the air and shoot from above. Whiplash doesn't really have any distance attack. Perhaps in the movie he can launch some kind of energy wave/beam or the whip extends really far.
  9. I doubt core fans are every going to be happy with how their favorite characters or story lines are portrayed on the screen, no matter how faithful the film makers are being to the source material. Switching medium requires changes and interpretations. Even if there are changes though, the movie can still be good. It starts with the script. Wolverine had some script problems, illogical or under-developed plot lines that took away from the enjoyment of the movie. So did the new Terminator. Iron Man, on the other hand, was a tighter story that didn't try to include more plot lines than the movie could handle. Obviously other things are important, casting, production values and cinematography. Wolverine and Terminator did those things right, but I think they both fell down in the script department. I don't mind changes to a character or story line as long the changes help tell a better story and don't contradict the spirit of the character. In the first Spider-Man, for instance, tying up Spidey's origins with the Green Goblin's worked for me. So did the organic webbing. What I'm saying is, I don't think changes are inevitably bad. The X-Men movie costumes looked cool, though they lacked individuality. Nightcrawler's introduction to the team in the second movie was not comic based, but it worked for the story so I had no problem with it. If the changes have a purpose, enabling the telling of a good story, and they don't contradict my view of the characters, then I have no problem with them.
